We just don’t know what to make of this. The towel bomb is such a mysterious yet powerful act, as it can be used for affection and insult alike.
So what message was J.R Smith trying to get across when he towel bombed Chris Paul in his post-game interview?
Smith has a reputation for not taking anything seriously, but Paul didn’t even crack after discovering he had been bombed.
But you can’t blame him for reacting pretty sharply. He’s probably been attacked with chloroform in a very similar manner before.
